Most Romantic Restaurants in West Palm Beach

Cupid here…ready to help you find the most romantic restaurants in West Palm Beach. Let me preface this by sharing my criteria for a romantic restaurant…

  • Quiet enough for a conversation
  • Candles galore
  • Cozy and intimate
  • Beautiful space

Let my passion for local restaurants help you plan the perfect romantic dinner in West Palm Beach.

Step inside a beautiful botanical dining room, and prepare to be wowed by the atmosphere and the food. Expect grilled meats, Florida seafood and comfort foods like pastas. After dinner, sneak away to their speakeasy upstairs.

Fern Street Wine Bar & Kitchen
Prepare to be impressed with everything! They’ve got the perfect blend of urban art and innovative farm-to-table cuisine. Enjoy menu items like Smoked Wagyu Brisket, Spanish Octopus with Chimmichurri or Wood-Fired Vegetables. Dine inside or on their art-filled patio.

Tucked away in a little unassuming strip shopping center is this hidden gem. Owned by Tiger Wood’s former personal chef, Matthew Byrne and his wife Aliza, they will make you feel right at home. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu, but a few personal favorites…Charred Corn & Crab Cake • Crispy Eggplant with Roasted Peppers, Burrata, Arugula & Balsamic • Everything Crusted Salmon • Coconut Cake • Dessert Sampler Plate. Any restaurant with a dessert sampler plate has my heart!

The most gorgeous ocean blue walls, flickering candles and a belly dancer on Friday & Saturday nights! Leila is a family-owned Middle Eastern restaurant just a block off Clematis Street. Enjoy the Leila Tour which is a mezza (appetizer) platter of several popular dishes.

Maison Carlos
I bet you’ve driven by this tiny place many times, and next time…don’t drive by! Inside, is a family owned small fine dining restaurant tucked in the neighborhood where Carlos and his wife live. With only eleven tables, this is the intimate restaurant you’ve been looking for. Carlos is there every night, seating people, taking orders and serving amazing food.

It’s a wine bar and a restaurant and an art gallery and a design store, and it’s absolutely gorgeous! From the moment you walk in the door, you’ll be WOWED! Cupid highly recommends Nomad’s Dining in the Dark event on Saturday nights where the entire space in lit entirely by candlelight with soft live music playing. Oooooh, ahhhhhh.

The Blind Monk
Tucked away from the craziness of Clematis Street, you’ll find The Blind Monk beckoning you with the best wines, cheeses, charcuterie and all sorts of delicious creations. Expect a cozy indoor space with chandeliers that look like champagne bubbles. Outside, enjoy the most beautiful patio dining in downtown West Palm Beach.

Did you notice that Cupid left out some of our amazing restaurants with beautiful water views like Spruzzo and Elisabetta’s? Great restaurants, but I wouldn’t describe them as quiet, cozy or intimate. If you want the romance of the waterfront, stroll along the intracoastal waterway after dinner or create your own progressive dinner with walks in between each course.

Let the romantic date night in West Palm Beach begin!
